Steak tartare, chips, salad in the Brasserie.

White bread appears strangely disguised in a paper bag with a little container of French butter.

Freshly prepared steak tartare lacked much flavour - chips, though apparently homemade, were soggy - salad nondescript, effortlessly thrown-together was cheap lettuce and flavourless tomatoes (although good ones are in season) in a meagre bowl (it costs extra for a full serving, but would I want one?).

Glass of cheap Spanish red (Menciía, perhaps, complete with fizzy flaw), €6,50.

Glass of local beer, Tongerlo, as an apéro was excellent.

Steak tartare, a beer, small glass of wine, €36.

Hope the restaurant is a little better than the Brasserie.

Lovely hotel, good size and clean rooms, shower/bathroom excellent too. Recommend restaurant good quality and well presented food. Location on the edge of town but in walking distance, few nice bars. Close to motorways.

I stayed here one night, en-route to Switzerland.

The grounds and facilities are lovely and check-in was very friendly and efficient. I was taken to my room by one of the associates.

The room was very nice, with a good cable TV, very comfortable bed and a modern and clean bathroom.

I had to leave early in the morning and was surprised to find the reception is not staffed until 0900. That makes payment a challenge.

However, when I phoned later, the hotel were very helpful and helped me pay over the phone.

They know how to look after the guests here. The food was excellent as well as the between course tasters. Simply exquisite. Food is always excellent in Belgium but this raised the bar
